Hi Daniel,
I have been trying to figure out how to allow registered users to place markers on the frontend. There is nothing on the hotspots map that allows for anything - it only shows what I do on the backend. No forms; no "add marker" or "add location" buttons; just the map with backend editing. I am attaching a screen shot of all I get when logged in as a registered user.

I came across this response you had to someone else back on Oct 15 and it is making me think that something is missing:
"Enable the error reporting and let me know what the error is. Maybe it doesn't have anything with the downgrade. But as I said - frontend submission is part of the PRO package and if you run the core..."

I went ahead and turned on error reporting to "Maximum" before posting here, and I am not getting any errors reported. I am running Hotspots Pro 4.3.3 on Joomla 3.3.6 stable.
netzaritimes.com/index.php/where-are-you I will leave error reporting on if you wish to check it yourself.

Thank You,
Mark

I notice that in your video, and on your Hotspots demo page, you have a "Other views/More Info" module on the right side of the map. It includes, "Demo styled map", "Demo user location centering", "Submit a Locations ", "Single Location"... I have no such module for this. What module are you using to create this? I do not find anything in the documentation on this.

Thank you,
Mark

Got it figured out. I had the wrong menu setting. So I created one page for adding the frontend markers, and one for showing the larger map with markers placed. Add Your Location and Where Are You?

When I first fired it up the form labels were all over the screen. I tracked down the problem to the JXTC template. default.css:220
#adminForm label{font-size: 0.875em;font-weight:bold;line-height:42px;} - changed to 35px

I couldn't see the input boxes too well so I made a personal preference change with the background color in the boxes. hotspots.css:970 & 1069
background:#fafafa; - changed to (ghostwhite) #F8F8FF

All that ails me now is that the "READ MORE" button does not work. When I click on it, nothing happens. When I save a location/marker, there is no read more in the Hotspots description. Your assistance on this one would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
Mark

What read more button is not working? When I look at your site "where are you" and I click on the "read more" everything seems to be perfectly fine.

Regards,
Daniel

Hi Daniel,

Thank you for the response. I just realized, this is posted in the wrong forum. It should be in the Hotspots Pro forum. My apologies.

To answer your question, it is the "READ MORE" on the "Add Your Location" page - when adding new markers on the frontend of Hotspots. Under the text area is a "READ MORE" button that does not function.

With the experience I've had trying to get Hotspots and CComment installed on this JXTC template, I'm of the persuasion the problem has more to do with the JXTC coding. But please have a look again, if you will and advise.

" Add Your Location "

Thank you,
Mark

Aha, well could you try the standard protostar template for the submit page?
Just go to extension manager -> templates -> select protostar and select the page where it should be loaded. Then refresh the page in the frontend and look if the button is working? If it is still not working, can you change the your site's editor? I actually believe that it is not the template, but something with the editor... Anyway let me know what you find out.

In my test on our demo page and on my dev. machine everything seems fine.

I tried changing to Protostar template and that did not change the Read More function.

Then I changed to the Tiny MCE editor and the Read More function works correctly. Wow, simple as that.

The CComments and Hotspots extensions are SUPER great. CComments is the first comment system that functions correctly with Captcha, (and ReCaptcha working in Hotspots) without creating major conflicts. No more having to switch functions off and on in global settings and rewriting some code. I had gotten so used to having to check code with other extensions, when it came to CompoJoom, I assumed the same procedures were required. Not so, the adjustments I have had to make with CComments and Hotspots have been very simple. You are changing my way of thinking and making my work easier.

I have finally found an excellent source for high quality Joomla extensions, and I will be adding more CompoJoom to my projects.

Thank you Daniel,

Hey Mark,
Thank you for the kind words! I hate to fiddle around with code in extensions as well. I try to make everything as easy as possible - sometimes I manage to do so, other times I fail :)

If you find anything that can be improved and you have a clear picture how it can be improved - then just let me know!

Thanks again!
Daniel

P.S. It would be really awesome if you could find few minutes to post reviews about ccommetn and hotspots here:
